    Pliny, very tastefully put together, I like the pop of colour the PS adds to the ensemble.

    I have a suit in a similar shade (albeit in herringbone). It's good to see suits like this being worn well.

    So hot! Anyway you look at it it's great. You look like the too smooth rough hewn sexual predator of the office. The only thing is that you don't chase your prey. Your prey chases you.

    Looks great Pliny, but you could really use some extended shoulders a la B&tailor. Your hips seem just as wide/maybe even wider than your shoulders.

    Isn't that jacket a little too big?

    Just back from a long weekend in Portland, Maine, and this is as formal as I can be this morning, after having spent a good deal of the weekend in polo shirts, shorts, and no socks.

    Sports jacket and trousers - BB
    Shirt - Saks
    Tie - JAB
    PS - no brand name
    Shoes - Boergdorf Goodman house brand (most likely Magnanni)

    Hi guys [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Nice but have you considered a wider cuff? I'll get better at this, bear with me.

    So close [​IMG]. Mark the area you want to spoiler before pressing the spoiler button and then you'll see what you're about to hide in the window that appears!

    Best to also post the pic in the challenge thread itself, or it'll likely get overlooked as an entry.

    My fit today is also for the challenge. Rule-breaking by using patterned trousers in a large-scale glen plaid. Not using patterned trousers is not a hard & fast faux-rule, I suppose, but it's certainly only seen rarely in this thread. They also happen to be trousers from a suit, and wearing suit elements as separates is also rare here:

    Plus, yesterday's fit. In a way I suppose this one might be considered even more of a rule-breaker (or, at least, unpopular style), given the presence of a true 3B suit and a partially-visible tie clip. Also, a far more flashy tie than SF likes, but given that I do that commonly enough anyway, I can't really consider that rule-breaking!

    [​IMG] Matter of fact this is a subtle herringbone too. And a little more brown IRL

    Thanks MF & point taken. With age comes width in the wrong places [​IMG]

    I understand the process, but not the name. Doesn't seem to jive with the usual meaning or intent of a spoiler. So some kind gent is about to 'splain that to me. First one in gets a case of Old Milwaukee donated to a charity of their choice.

    Pliny, that is a delightful combo.
